Before “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” started during our press screening, we all saw director Zack Snyder making a plea to not reveal any spoilers. So in honoring his wishes, this is a spoiler-free review, I just want to enumerate the pros and cons of the superhero movie.
But first, here’s what you need to know -- there’s Batman (Ben Affleck) fighting Superman (Henry Cavill) and there’s a dawning of the Justice League, hence the appearances of Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), Cyborg (Ray Fisher), and the Flash (Ezra Miller).

We also have “The Confirmation” from the Oscar-nominated screenwriter of “Nebraska,” Bob Nelson, making his directorial debut. This one has Clive Owen and Jaeden Lieberher as father and son who must bond one weekend.

Clive Owen and Jaeden Lieberher are both delightful on and off screen! They play father and son in the new fantastic movie “The Confirmation” from “Nebraska” screenwriter Bob Nelson making his directorial debut. Owen plays an alcoholic and absent father to Lieberher’s Anthony. The crux of the movie is Owen’s character’s search for his missing tool box.
I love “The Confirmation!” It’s funny and charming and deeply thought-provoking about fatherhood with a little slice of Americana and Catholicism! This one’s witty and brilliant!
I hope you enjoy my interview with Owen and Lieberher as much as I do! “The Confirmation” opens Friday and also available on iTunes.
